The strawberry tree.

the cane-apple bush
The arbutus-berry

The arbutus-berry is the fruit of the cane-apple bush, known also as the strawberry tree . Arbutus unedo (Ericaceae family).

It is a Mediterranean species, which one also meets on the Atlantic littoral. The cane-apple bush can live from 100 to 400 years and its size varies from 3 m to 15 m.

The flowers appear in the shape of bunches of small bells of a greenish white in September and October. They are present at the same time as the fruits resulting from the flowering of the previous year, which mature very slowly.

The persistent foliage of a shining green, the simultaneous presence of the flowers and many fruits of 2cm to 3 cm in diameter roughcast of small points, whose color varies yellow with the red with maturity, make cane-apple bush a very decorative shrub.

The fruit is edible. It contains many small seeds, its pulpit yellowish is farinaceous and insipid, but its jams are delicious.

The sheets are equipped with various medicinal properties.

Saint-Privat is a French commune, located in the department of the Herault of the Languedoc-Roussillon area, populated of 218 Privatois, divided on 27 km², that is to say 8 hab./km².

The commune leaned with the buttresses of Larzac, is made up of three villages: Saint-Privat, la Rouquette and les Salces. In this last village is the church église Notre-Dame XIth, XIIth, XIXth, XIXth centuries.

Bonsoir Joel
Ce n'est normalement pas ton style photographique mais c'est bien aussi d'en changer, surtout quand l'occasion se présente ;) Quelle agréable surprise de voir cette belle lumière et ce ciel bleu (je croyais que le temps était assez gris en France)! J'aime la texture et couleurs de ces fruits qui tranchent bien sur le ciel. Merci pour les photos dans le ws.
Amitiés
Marilyn
